A meteorite exploded over Russia in February. NASA says that it weighed approximately 10,000 tons. The moment of the explosion was captured on people's cameras. It was quite something.
The meteorite scattered into lots of pieces which many people look for. Around 400 smaller pieces have been found.
Scientists think that they have found the biggest piece of the meteorite. The chunk was found in a lake and it was hard to get. The project costs around 60,000 pounds. Scientists hope that the test will confirm that it is the main part of the meteorite.
Difficult words: approximately (around), scatter (move into many directions), chunk (big piece).
